Format: Mass Market Paperback
Extension du domaine explorers the balance of power between men and women at the end of the 20th century through the spiral into clinical depression of a computer programmer.
Houellebecq makes a powerful case that economic and sexual liberalism have the same net result. Absolute poverty for some and absolute wealth for others.
Not a book for depressives... or computer programmers for that matter. A simple book to read for people who are learning French.

Format: Paperback
This is Houellebecq's first novel, in which he, in his poignant yet unpolished style - he oftentimes reminded me of Bukowski and Brusselmans - rather darkly sketches what could happen in a world where people start seeing themselves and others as merchandise, economically and sexually. A young, depressed systems guy at a Parisian software company is sent out to do a series of trainings in provincial France. He is not happy to do it, and to his surprise, he is forced to go do it with an extremely ugly and sexually frustrated collegue. Failing miserably at trying to console one another (they wouldn't know how, so they just endure, silently screaming), outsiders in a world with which they are unable to communicate, the trip ends up to be a chain of misfortune, bitterness, loathing and ultimately utter depression.
